Incorporating nonfiction into your Guided Reading library offers huge benefits to young readers. Reading nonfiction boosts vocabulary, develops visual literacy, and is great for reluctant readers whose interest may be sparked by the high-interest topics. These Level J-K titles will begin to introduce students to longer texts, such as chapter books, and contain more difficult concepts. Use them to help students hone their reading strategies to figure out different writing styles and to satisfy their curiosities about the world around them.
